To clarify, I actually appear to be in the minority of folks around here that like Warren Haynes and I asbolutely love Derek Trucks' slide work. That said, I'd like to see them in their own respective bands (Govt Mule/DTB) or going outside the catalogue of the Dead/Allmanns to liven it up.

I wish I could agree, but man I just don't hear it.

Haynes and the Trucks kid are great musicians, but it just goes on and on and on, then ceases to be pleasurable to my ears.

There's no passion in any of this anymore, and has been done over and over. I'd rather listen to stuff 20 years old than some copy.

Sorry for any "venom", but I just find it unfortunate that stuff so medicore or rehashed for the 1000th time is being sold as the next level and people eat it up.

That's how I felt about the latter-day Grateful Dead. For the most part, rehashed mediocrity filling stadiums.

I understand you saying that in context of ABB; what I'm saying is I enjoy seeing Warren w/ Govt Mule and Derek with his band and his wife (Susan Tedechi) when they do their soul stew revival (or whatever they call it). I understand if you don't like those bands as well, but just wanted to clarify that I'm not excited about seeing them do Mtn Jam or One Way Out, but I'd still go see them with their other outfits (and will see Govt Mule later this year).

You know what it very well may be possible that I don't like any "jam" bands other than the Grateful Dead, and more specifically 67-74 with some 77, 82 and 89 mixed in.

I just hear some who likes to hear themselves talk when it comes to Haynes, except he does it with the guitar and doesn't ever shut up.

Can't say I've had too much exposure to D. Trucks so I hold my opinion until that day.

Agreed, too. I just feel the whole thing is being packaged as "The Return of The Grateful Dead".
The concert's for a good cause. Good luck to Obama. IMO as a British Marxist (not sure he'd want that) he's better that the oil-loving chimp on his way out, or the gun-toting totty who's trying to get her boss in. BTW did she name her kids after the first words that came into her head?? Why not Laptop, Dog, Lightbulb, Bollocks and Bickershaw?

That's the name of a Law Firm, No?
